Olaaa from sunny Lisboa!

So, I’ve been a bit slow with the blog recently but this dizzying Portuguese heatwave has had me avoiding any sort of manual/not so manual labour. It sort of sucked the energy out of me for the last week or so but I’ve decided not to let it get to me anymore (also it’s letting up so I don’t really have any excuse to)

This outfit was one of the three I actually wore that day, this heat has got me changing outfits more so than I ever have but it was definitely my favourite. The wide leg vertical stripes are so flattering on one’s figure and have a really slimming effect asides from elongating the length of the leg. Pairing it with a simple ribbed high neck vest then created a sort of effortlessly chic look that I jazzed up with my fish skeleton (moons and suns?) earrings and headband. The latter was a lucky find in a Parisian vintage store earlier this year and only cost me a Euro (vintage stores in Paris are the one people)

The silver accents on the boot buckles with the earrings then gave this look more of a colour coolness that alternatively fit right into the vibe I was feeling at that point. I was feeling very cool ngl – the shade from the tree helped too.

I’ve been having a lovely time in Lisbon so far, it really is a city that captured my heart almost instantly. Although, I won’t lie, I hated it as a child. Having to spend a month or two in another country away from friends and the like wasn’t something I appreciated but it’s grown on me over the years. My mama’s family here definitely helps (they’re all crazy and I love them to bits!)

I’ll have another post up very, very soon.

Until then, ate ja xxx
